[hello my name is (name) and i’m a constituent from (senator’s state). senator, i am disappointed with your stance on the american health care act. under this bill millions of americans would be uninsured and medicaid would be slashed- hurting the most vulnerable citizens. furthermore this bill will pull funding from a necessary women’s health organization, planned parenthood, as well as undermine protections for those with preexisting comditions. (insert a personal story if you have one) america’s health depends on you voting against the american health care act. i hope you prioritize the needs of your constituents before the july 4th recess. thank you.]

*: extremely opposed to the ahca
^: up for reelection in 2018 and voting yes would be detrimental to their campaign efforts

Nudge Theory

Characters: CastielXReader, Dean Winchester, Sam Winchester

Word Count: 5323 (Act V)

A/N: The [extended] conclusion to a five-act miniseries. The reader and Castiel must work together to solve the curious case of the missing Winchesters. Fluff, smut, and a plot for kicks (I’ve been informed it got kinda angsty – so, uh, yay, something for everyone?!). All mysteries and roads converge in Clifton Springs, NY – whither will they lead from there? Here’s a hint about the roads – there is a 100% probability they all lead to a mountain of fluff.

Previous chapters:  Act I,  Act II, Act III , Act IV - Part I, Act IV - Part II

“Y/N?”

The familiar rumbling whisper thundered through your pounding head with the boom of a freight train. You groaned in response.

“They’ve left for the moment,” the whispered onslaught continued, “there was a heated argument. Mrs. Kinlay did not want to miss bingo night at the senior center despite Mr. Kinlay’s wounds. Evidently, a Mrs. Reynolds recently returned from an extended cruise which was in reality a cover story for obtaining plastic surgery and the so-called botch job isn’t to be missed.”

You groaned again.

“Are you hurt?”

More discombobulated yet distinctly incensed syllables somersaulted from your tongue. You meant to say: “Bingo? Seriously? Well at least something about those impostors stinks of being geriatric.”

Cas took the irate tone of your incoherent groans as confirmation you were unharmed save for the diminishing effects of the cataleptic drug in your system, “They intend to perform some sort of ritual. We appear to be central components. Fortunately, it seems important to them that we remain largely unharmed.”

Two very *quick* actions today (< 5 minutes):

1) CALL Homeland Security to tell them Bannon MUST be removed from the NSC (National Security Council). Calls are making an impact - staffers says calls are pouring in against Steve Bannon. It takes 5 minutes and essentially goes right to voicemail where you can leave your comments: (202) 224-4751

2) CALL the following Senators to oppose DeVos. We only need *one* more Republican to stand up against her!
AZ - Flake R (202) 224-4521 (602) 840-1891
KS - Moran R (202) 224-6521 (785) 628-6401
NE - Fischer R (202) 224-6551 (402) 441-4600
NV - Heller R (202) 224-6244 (702) 388-6605 << possibly our easiest win, let’s flood his line!
PA - Toomey R (202) 224-4254 (814) 453-3010
WV - Capito R (202) 224-5323 (414) 276-7282
NC - Tillis R (919) 856-4630 . (202) 224-6342. - he is also still undecided

It CAN make a difference!

How To Replace A Leg

Last week, @e–wills posted THIS answer to a question about how other riders would react to losing a limb, adding that she’d love to read a fic about Astrid losing a limb. I liked the idea a lot as well, so I wrote this. I hope you like it. 

Summary: Hiccup was not the only one to lose a leg in in the battle against the Red Death. Astrid doesn’t let a wooden leg slow her dow,n getting right back to training no matter what. Meanwhile, Hiccup struggles with his own pain. Thankfully, they have each other to lean on when their own legs fail. 

Genre: Hurt/comfort, angst, friendship, Hiccstrid
Length: 5323 words
Warnings: Some gore, and mild swearing

———————————————————————-

Hiccup winced as he took another step with the prosthetic leg. Still a dozen steps to go until he reached the bottom of the stairs of the Great Hall. It had been weeks since the battle, so why did it still hurt so much? A broken limb would have healed by now, and his leg certainly looked healed. Well, if you ignored the fact that about one third was missing, it looked healed.

He gently took another step, swearing softly when a blast of pain raced up from his… stump. Short distances weren’t so bad. It would barely hurt. Just the constant ache he always felt. But after a long day of walking and running, or at least attempting to run without stumbling and falling, it felt like his leg was on fire. It made him almost wish for winter to arrive already, just so he could scoop up some snow to cool down the flame that wasn’t there.
